Whether you are a connoisseur, an enthusiast or a casual admirer of wine, one truth remains: the delicate taste of wine changes upon exposure to oxygen. That means wine is best enjoyed within a few hours of being opened. If not properly preserved, wine can go bad in as little as 2 to 8 hours. PlatyPreserve is the best way to protect the taste of an open bottle of wine. Alternative methods might have you pump air out of your wine bottle or inject gas into the bottle. With PlatyPreserve, you simply transfer your un-finished wine into an air tight reservoir, protecting the taste so it can be enjoyed days or even weeks later.

Finally, Platypus has designed a solution for carrying wine on your camping and backcountry trips that also answers the question of how to keep wine after opening. Because wine bottles are heavy and prone to breaking, and opening the wine and transferring it to a plastic bottle can ruin the taste, you now have the option of the Platy Preserve. This bottle size pouch is made of the same lightweight food grade materials as the Platypus water bottle, but it has opaque walls to keep out light, which can ruin the flavor of wine. PlatyPreserve is the best way to protect the taste of an opened bottle of wine by completely eliminating the presence of oxygen. While alternative methods might have you pump air out of the bottle or inject gas into the bottle, PlatyPreserve has you transfer your un-finished wine into an air tight reservoir to truly protect the taste of your wine so it may be enjoyed several days or even weeks later. Directions: 1. Pour wine into PlatyPreserve 2. Place cap loosely on PlatyPreserve 3. Remove all air by squeezing PlatyPreserve 4. Tighten cap to seal out air in PlatyPrerserve. Since PlatyPreserve is a flexible container, the air can be removed from the wine by simply squeezing the container to expel ALL of the air. This can not be done with a rigid glass container. Cleaning Directions: 1. Rinse PlatyPreserve thoroughly with warm water (no soap) 2. Turn PlatyPreserve upside down to dry 3. Repeat after each use. A lightweight, easy way to carry wine into the backcountry that also preserves wine better than a bottle? This Platypus wine container is a must-have addition to any wine-lover's possessions.
